Appeals. (A79-745-883)

Before WILKINSON, MOTZ, and DUNCAN, Circuit Judges.

Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion.

Ekanem Ufia Ekanem, Petitioner Pro Se. Daniel Eric Goldman, UNITED
STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.

Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.


See Local Rule 36(c).

PER CURIAM:
Ekanem Ufia Ekanem, a native and citizen of Nigeria,
petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration
Appeals (Board). The order denied his motion to reopen the Boards
summary dismissal of his appeal from the Immigration Judges order
denying relief from removal.

We have reviewed the record and the

Boards order and find no abuse of discretion in the Boards denial


of the motion to reopen.
1003.2(a)(2005).

See 8 C.F.R. 1003.1(d)(2)(i)(E);

In addition, we deny Ekanems pending motion for

a stay of removal.

See 8 U.S.C. 1252(f)(2) (2000).

Accordingly, though we grant Ekanems motion to proceed


on appeal in forma pauperis, we deny the petition for review.

We

dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions
are adequately presented in the materials before the court and
argument would not aid the decisional process.

PETITION DENIED
